Didn't work for me – 15-Pin VGA to S-video AV RCA TV Cable (19CM-Length) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Well built, looks like regular cable....
Cons:
This is not a signal converter, it only converts the pin type. Do not full yourself, this is not a converter. That is not really a con, but many people will make this mistake.
Other:
Be careful. If you are not 100 percent sure that this is what you need, then it probably is not. VGA is a very different video signal then composite RCA or S-Video. This should not be confused with VGA video signal and composite video signal which are comparable. Under normal conditions, in order to convert a VGA signal to a composite video signal, you need a converter (an active device) not an adapter (a passive device). This cable will only work with certain video cards that are made for this specific pin-out and signal type.
Bottomline:
If you want to connect your pc and tv this cable is probably not for you. You should google how to connect a pc and tv before you buy it.
